Package: nvidia-settings
Version: 390.87-1~deb9u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I am using a dual screen of Asus VG248QE, which can handle refresh rates up to 144Hz.

When using nvidia-settings or xrandr, the refresh rate is not saved.

It appears that it is not saved in .nvidia-settings-rc.

Every reboot, the refresh rate comes back to 60Hz.

Apart from this, the nvidia-settings GUI indicates that resolutions and refresh rates for both monitors
are set to "Auto" after each reboot.

Hope that I have been clear enough, do not hesitate to ask me for more details.

Best regards,
